Next week is National Travel and Tourism Week, and Tour Cayuga Executive Director Meg Vanek tells Finger Lakes News Radio it is a chance to focus on the impact of the travel and tourism industry across the nation.
Mayor Michael Quill will read a proclamation at next week’s Auburn city council meeting. Vanek adds they’ll have a surprise for the mayor and city council.
The Finger Lakes Regional Tourism Council is a significant driver of tourism in New York State, contributing $3 Billion in traveler spending to the industry based on reports from 2016. That amounts to 18% of traveler spending in Upstate New York and 5% of all traveler spending in the entire State.
